Geometry; Physics; Philosophy
Geometry, physics, and philosophy are, at least at first sight, different disciplines, but in Riemann’s case they are closely related and thus belong in one chapter. Riemann discussed their mutual relations in his habilitation lecture “Über die Hypothesen die der Geometrie zu Grunde liegen” (“On the hypotheses which lie at the foundation of geometry”) (W. 272–287), presented in the summer of 1854.
